My father suffering an inflammatory Bowel Disease and I think this is almost 3 yrs now and we just discover it last week after his colonoscopy. The doctor give him a medicine that is called "diflucan" and other related medicines. I just notice the my father having a hives on his feet and he has also had a high fiver and cough. I believe that this medicine has a lot of side-effects that might also cause fiver, cough and etc... And we notice that symptoms right now. Should we still use the medicine even if there's a side-effects to him? Please advise.View Thread
